Join us for 15 video game endings that just so insultingly didn’t try.
First impressions are important, but how a video game wraps up the experience can also colour our impressions of a title overall. Unfortunately not all titles get to have the strong finish they needed, whether they were the awkward middle child of a trilogy, hacked to pieces due to budget at the last minute or a developer just got a bit cocky and left us with a sequel bait tease that never would go anywhere, sometimes we see games that we complete and are just insulted that it could be left with that. Spoilers ahead, you’ve been warned.
Deus Ex Human Revolution
Deus Ex: Human Revolution shared with players a dystopic future with questions of transhumanism that we may very well be answering in the real world soon enough as technology seems to rapidly develop. With such fantastic base concept, and the Illuminati stoking the fires of the war to come between the Augmented and the normal humans, what did the title have to say about the whole debate it presented? It just asks you to pick a button to decide your ending. We never asked for this.
